    Forecast the Doubles Rules and Leaderboard 2017

    Hi everyone. It’s almost time for the eagerly anticipated predictions contest - Forecast the match! This contest will take place for all Grand Slam matches and Master Series matches. There may also be some Forecast the Match contests for some of Jamie's other tournaments. I am posting the rules of the game and how points will be scored for everyone to read before starting predicting.

    How to play:
    For each tournament you will have to predict a Main Draw FTM.
    1. How far Jamie will go in the tournament
    2. The winner of the tournament and the 2 finalists
    3. For each of Jamie’s matches, you will need to predict the winner and score of the match. For example, Jamie Murray wins in 3 sets 7-6, 6-3, 6-2
    (Please ensure you state the player name and a valid winning scoreline commensurate with a best of 3-set match or best of 5-set match based on ATP/ITF Rules. E.g. for Wimbledon which are best of 5 sets you need to make sure you have your player winning 3 and losing 0, 1 or 2 sets)
    4. Also when the semi finals and the final comes around, you will also get to choose the winner and the score of the final (similar to above)

    Scoring:
    How far Jamie can go in the tournament? 1 point for correct round Jamie reached.
    Predicting 1 set of semi-finalists: 1 point (another for predicting the other set of semi-finalists)
    Predicting both finalists: 1 point.

    Rules:
    - If Jamie withdraws from a tournament before he hits a ball in his first scheduled match the FTM Main Draw will be void and no points scored. All 4 Grand Slams will have FTM even if Jamie is not playing.
    - If Jamie starts playing in a tournament, whether R1 or R2 via a Bye, and subsequently withdraws through injury/illness, or is knocked out by losing, the FTM Main Draw stands.
    - If Jamie is out, we will have predictions on other matches
    - Remember that in Grand Slam matches, it is a best of 5 set match.

    Predicting Jamie’s matches and the final match:
    1 point for correct winner of the match
    1 point for correct number of sets (3, 4, 5) provided correct winner is predicted
    1 point for each correct set scoreline (6-4) (provided correct winner and correct number of sets) For example:
    Predicted score 6-4, 6-3, 7-6
    Actual score 6-4, 6-2, 7-5
    1 point Awarded provided correct winner is predicted

    5 extra points will be awarded if anyone manages to predict the correct scoreline in a Grand Slam match! If you correctly predict the scoreline in a 3 set match, you get 3 extra points.

    Rules:
    • If the match ends through retirement no points would be awarded.
    • You can edit your predictions as often as you want, provided you do not try and edit it after the deadline as the thread will be closed then.
    • Forecasts which do not clearly state the expected winner and a legal score will be ignored

    Points will be added up after each of Jamie’s matches, as well as a leaderboard at the end of the tournament.
